Konkani Comedy Film to be released in Kuwait
Kuwait: Goa's ace comedian Agostinho Themudo will release his fourth Konkani
VCD film 'Kurroikar' in Kuwait on Friday, 24th June 2005.
Agostinho's performances over the years in Konkani dramas and video films
has acclaimed him one of Konkani stage's top rated natural comedians, and
has bagged him the year's 'Best Comedian' in the prestigious Gulab Awards.
Agostinho's maiden VCD 'Mar taka Soddnaka' was a super-duper hit. His other
VCDs are 'Sorry Pai' and 'Sunday'. He also has 4 audio albums of jokes and
songs to his credit - Interview, Good-for-nothing, Suseg, and Honeymoon and
perhaps Agostinho is one of the few Konkani artistes to feature in over 30
'Kurroikar' features comedians Sally, Selvy, Janet and Crizon. The album is
produced by Manfa Music and directed by Fabian G. Da Costa.
When asked whether the film would be as good a laugh-riot as his first, he
commented, "I try my best to better myself with each production and
performance so I can live up to the expectation of my fans...It's for them
to judge how good it is..."
Agostinho is in Kuwait to act in Mario de Majorda's 'Chuklelim Pavlam' - a
drama to be staged at Hawally AC Auditorium on Friday. He will be touring UK
and Canada next month along with some of Goa's top most artistes.
